On cask @ Karl Strauss Costa Mesa. Clear orange pour with a layer of off-white foam. Huge ginger aromas. Really spicy. Some orange, a bit of lemon, and light grapefruit. Some sweet caramel malt underneath. Flavor is intensely ginger forward and spicy. Mild bitterness. Sweet caramel and orange to the flavor as well. Decent pine and grapefruit, but the ginger comes back on the finish.
